The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.” Albert Einstein
Tufts Departments of Education and Physics & Astronomy offer a series of graduate-level courses for K-8 science educators focused on doing science. That’s the “practices” part of the new MA Framework and Dimension 1 of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Take a Class
The first course begins this spring: Experiencing Scientific Inquiry. It will be mostly online, with three in-person meetings at Tufts.
Teachers interested in continuing their education may register for the full three-course sequence on teaching scientific inquiry.
Earn a Certificate
After completing the first course, students may apply to the Science Education Certificate Program. Credit earned in the first online course will be transferred into this program. Request more information by emailing Certificates@tufts.edu.
